The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and the International Trade Program

Description: This thesis is a study of the results of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. The study of the results of this Conference is important because this was the first time an international gathering of so large a number of countries was held specifically to discuss trade and development problems. One hundred and nineteen nations met in Geneva in a spirit of cooperation and with the expressed willingness to permit international interests to prevail over national interests. The papers presented at this Third Committee will be examined as a device to show the relation of international finance, private development finance companies, tourism, ocean shipping, and external debt to the problem of development. Also, the creation of an International Trade Organization will be discussed as a possible beginning to the solution of the development-trade problem.

A Descriptive Ecological Study of Selected First Admissions to a Private Psychiatric Hospital 1960 through 1963

Description: Following Hawley's point of view regarding the definition and inclusiveness of human ecology, ecological data must include both a population and its characteristics and some measurements of the environment of this population. Following Hawley, an ecological investigation must select from available data and examine at least some of the relationships that may exist among these measurable population and environmental characteristics, in an effort to find and isolate the causes of mental disorders, particularly of those now called "functional."

The Evolution of Capital Formation Theory

Description: The various aspects of a social science ramify closely with one another, and so it will be necessary to inspect certain economic theories rather extensively in search of their meaningful connection with the word "capital." However, the major purpose here will be an examination of the use and potential logical use of the terms "capital" and "capital formation."

England and the International Monetary System of the Nineteenth Century

Description: There were two international standards in the nineteenth century, the theoretical gold standard and the historical sterling standard. The primary interest of this thesis is the latter, although the theoretical framework of the gold standard will also be examined. Because of its role in the London money market, particular attention will be given to the Bank of England. Since the Bank and the international standards were products of the evolutionary and revolutionary changes which occurred in Britain during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, an attempt will be made to examine them within their historical context.

The Keynesian Concept of Savings

Description: The problem under investigation in this study is the determination of the usefulness of the concept of saving set forth by John M. Keynes in his The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, both as a method of prediction and prevention of business cycles and as a conceptual framework which is for use in explaining past economic activity, particularly economic growth. The study has a twofold purpose. The first is to evaluate the workability of the Keynesian definitions when applied to existing sources of economic data; to see if a meaningful savings aggregate is a statistical possibility. The second is to attempt to explain in terms of related parts of the rest of Keynes' theoretical system the conclusions reached under the first purpose above.

A Descriptive Study of Selected Characteristics of Aged First Admissions to a Private Psychiatric Hospital 1959-1963

Description: The purpose of this thesis is to provide a descriptive study of psychiatric and social variables related to aged first admissions to a private psychiatric hospital in the calendar years 1959 through 1963. The study also seeks to determine what, if any, relationship exists between background characteristics of the patients and their diagnoses. Finally, the diagnosis of the patient is compared with a series of patient outcome variables to determine the relationship, if any, between diagnosis and selected recovery variables. Due to the nature of the data used, the emphasis of the thesis is upon describing relationships rather than testing hypotheses.

Market Power in the Common Market

Description: This study involved an analysis of the competitive philosophy and market structures of the European Economic Community. The investigation was concerned with market power both within the EEC itself and between the EEC and its eighteen African Associates. Although the present Association is in part a vestige of the colonial era, its economic nature is closely related to the economic nature of the EEC. It was the object of this study to define these characteristics, showing how they evolved from forces concomitant with postwar recovery and integration.

A Review of the Legal Status of the Secondary Boycott in the United States

Description: The secondary boycott issue has been present in the history of the American labor movement throughout the twentieth century. It has, consequently, been subjected to many of the same changes in policy by Congress, interpretation by the courts, and attitude of the public as have strikes and picketing. Secondary boycotts, however, have been handicapped much more than the other instruments of union power in as much as they have usually been treated as though they were less legitimate. This thesis will discuss the secondary boycott, and it legal status in the United States.
